John Oceguera

Nevada Democratic Assembly Speaker John Oceguera is officially launching his bid for Congress.

Oceguera is termed out from seeking re-election in the state Assembly, and his announcement Monday was widely anticipated.

What remains unknown is which district he'll run in.

Nevada gains a fourth U.S. House seat in next year's election, but the boundaries have yet to be drawn.

State lawmakers failed to agree on a redistricting plan, and the matter is now in the hands of a Carson City judge.

Oceguera is an assistant fire chief for North Las Vegas.
